    Can't Boot Windows-Xp from Grub


    I had 4 partition in my 40 GB hard disk in which windows XP was installed on C: Drive and I installed linux on F: drive. But after succesfully installing Linux I can't boot windows XP from Grub Boot Loader. What really happend was that it was stoing acivity after showing "Root Verify Chainloader+1" option" and can't boot Xp, but it was booting Linux well and good. Where is the problem ?? Will anyone please tell me?

    My grub configuration is ok and i am sure about that but I want to tell u that I was given a warning message during partitioning with Disk Druid That I might have "Incorrect BIOS Geometry". Later when I boot my computer with Win98 CD to run "FDISK" I found that my partition table was Incorrect due to not able to view logical drives of windows and non dos "linux" drives. So How can I overcome that? Shall I have to re-format my total Hard Disk or Do it fron the begining or Flash my BIOS with recent Flash utility from the vendor?
